It is not difficult to be enchanted with Neeralaya, but it is certainly difficult to make up your mind what to do once you are here. Starting from solitary walks to white-water rafting to tree-house games, there is a lot for everyone to choose from.
You can experience the thrills of white-water rafting down the chilling waters of river Beas that flows along the property. We offer a choice of a short 3 km stretch for beginners as well as a long 12 km stretch for those who are more adventurous.
If you want a sport that is peaceful and exciting at the same time, go ahead, cast a line and reel in a trout right in front of your villa. We also organise day-long fishing excursions to the Tirthan valley famed for the same prized catch.
Test your endurance on some of the most scenic mountain trails of the world on bikes rented out from us. If you have more time in hand, we could also organise for longer trips along with picnic lunches.
An early morning start from Neeralaya will take you north on one of the highest motorable roads in the world - the Rohtang Pass, which greets you with breathtaking views of the Western Himalayas. Or you can choose to drive down to the ever popular Manali, where short visits to the over 400 year-old ‘Hadimba’ temple set amidst a pine forest, the old Manali village and the local markets complete the journey.
Naggar, the former capital of the Kullu kingdom is also a short drive away from the resort. Once there, you can stop by the 450 year-old Naggar castle, stroll around to see a few 15th century stone and wood carved temples and the Roerich Art Gallery.
Neeralaya offers you treks and hikes to various sites of interest and of different degrees of difficulty accompanied by expert mountain guides. The Bijli Mahadev Trek takes you up mountain slopes, to the temple dedicated to Lord Shiva on top of the ridge overlooking both the ‘Parvati’ and Kullu valleys.
This full day hike is a great way to see life in a Western Himalayan village
and visit a thriving apple orchard, especailly during the harvest season
(August-September) when you can even lend a hand picking the apples.
